The WVU Medicine Dietetic Internship Program provides loans to eligible students through the U.S. Department of Education. To apply for financial aid or learn more, please contact the internship director and review the most current financial aid policies. Prospective students should not apply for financial aid through West Virginia University since our internship is associated with, but not part of, West Virginia University.

  • Free off-campus parking with shuttle transportation
  • A low-cost WVU Medicine gym membership ($3)
